What i'm thinking of doing is this,

Map of networking

[Main modem]>[Router]>connected to laptop from WiFi> Pineapple connected to PoE/LaN from Ethernet port of laptop> Pineapple WAN/LAN connected to a access point like a router= to get better signal by using the N type access point.

My Wifi on my pineapple is screwed up here is my post on that http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/28943-pineapple-wifi-not-getting-signal-please-help/

Would this device work for what i'm wanting to do, or will all those deferent connections screw up from all the deferent access points?

Hey,

Remind you that the pineapple is a router. you can connect it to your router and use another wireless card to Create a wifi relay. :]

Another option is to share internet from your laptop to the pineapple and another wifi card for extend the range.

First of all the items for sale in the link you gave are only the 2 antennas, the ROUTER IS NOT INCLUDED, i hope you know that :P Now, if you already have i device like the router you are showing as and you want to use it you can use WhistelMatser's infusion "Network Manager" to configure your pineapple sharing internet access to from PoE LAN to WAN/LAN in no time ;). http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/27113-network-manager/

If you where planning to buy a router just for this purpose, even though an extra router is always good to have :P i would go with Foxtrot's suggestion on using the NHA. With it there is no need for any configuration, the pineapple it will use both, internal and external (NHA) antenna to broadcast the same network or you can use it for deauthenticating, something that you couldn't do with the router. NHA's output is 20dbi and it comes with 5dbi omni-directional antenna. If that is not enough for you you can increase NHA's output by reading this topic : http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/28921-do-not-use-the-afla-awus036nha-with-your-pineapple/ or by using a bigger antenna like the ones in your link :P
